BMW Motorrad VISION NEXT 100

The Great Escape

Question

As part of its centenary, the BMW Group designed four visionary vehicle concepts which go far beyond mere showcases. The BMW VISION NEXT 100 made the start, followed by the vision vehicles from MINI and Rolls-Royce. Finally, the BMW Motorrad VISION NEXT 100 celebrated its debut at the closing event of the World Tour "Iconic Impulses. The BMW Group Future Experience“ in Los Angeles. Congaz was hired by BMW Group to design and produce a film. This staged both the unusual appearance as well as the technical qualities of the BMW Motorrad VISION NEXT 100. The vehicle and its driver stand for the attributes of the BMW Group: forward-looking, versatile, visionary, innovative. In short, the joy of driving on two wheels.

Answer

The technology of the BMW Motorrad VISION NEXT 100 is staged with intelligent storytelling. Technical refinements are emotionally transported and linked conceptually: for example, "Self Balancing" – active, intelligent assistance systems balance the motorcycle independently during the ride as well as stationary. A tip-over is not possible. The driver's clothing of the BMW Motorrad VISION NEXT 100 is also an essential part of the unique driving experience. Likewise, the Visor, a vision-enclosing data goggle with wind protection function. The relevant data is projected directly into the driver's field of vision and is therefore a major part of the information exchange between the driver and the vehicle.

Progress

The holistic project responsibility included conceptual ideas, the development of a storyboard and filming, as well as the VFX/CGI production. At a total of seven locations, on two outdoor and three indoor shooting days, a camera vehicle, a camera-trailer, a camera-quad and a drone were involved.

Result

The film for the BMW Motorrad VISION NEXT 100 sets its focus on a consistent look, which stages the design of the motorcycle and its features. Selected scenes at different sites skillfully connect natural locations with urbanity. The resulting interplay conveys the extreme dynamics of the concept vehicle while being very safe and highly practical.
